There is some little compensation between NHL and Euro leagues. But the amount of money is not so big. If im correct, it is something about 200 000 USD for a player, that signed in NHL. Now the question is, how rich are the NHL teams in reality? How much could (want) they go, if they want some Euro prospect? Or even more, if they want some Euro star. Example. New York Rangers drafted goalie Igor Shestyorkin in 2014. He has a very good numbers in KHL. But he is signed now to season 2019/2020. Lets say, GM of Rangers desperately want this guy in his team in next season. How much could they pay SKA to buy him?
